The deadline for receipt of applications is 16 May 1997.
Citizens of Developing Countries may apply for a limited number of SCHOLARSHIPS awarded by UNESCO to young physicists or engineers who have not been to previous CERN Schools of Computing. The UNESCO scholarship covers the cost of the course fee, including board and lodging and, in certain cases, travel. It is primarily intended for applicants from countries which are not members of CERN. Priority will be given to applicants from developing countries and those not requiring travel assistance.
Applications for support must be submitted on a special application form by 1 May 1997, together with the formal application to the School, the formal letter of reference and work summary, as mentioned under item 8.

First name and surname Institute Street Town Country e-mail addressMy current area of work with the Department DV&EE at GSI is related to the development and maintenance of data acquisition systems. The SBS acquisition system, developed at GSI, supports a distributed (Frontend: LynxOS, Client-Server: UNIX, OpenVMS) Client-Server concept. This requires an understanding of network communication (TCP/IP) as well as knowledge of hardware programming. My present project is an implementation of an ESONE Client-Server system based on the technique of RPC's. For my Ph.D. I am developing a new MWDC for particle tracking in the first exotic nuclei experiment at GSI and implementing parts of the data acquisition/ analysis software for the neutron detector LAND at GSI. I am familiar with DCL and shell scripts and the programming languages C, Fortran, Pascal, PL/I and Lisp. I have experience in developing software under the operations systems UNIX (AIX, HP-UX, LynxOS), OpenVMS, DOS and Windows and the RS/6000, HP, AXP/alpha, PC and VME-based systems.
